Personal, Social, Health & Economic Education

What is PSHE Education?

PSHE education is a planned, developmental programme of learning designed to help learners develop the knowledge, understanding and skills they need to manage their lives, now and in the future in modern Britain.

It deals with real life issues which affect children and young people, their families and their communities, and engages with the social and economic realities of their lives, experiences and attitudes.

Wilson’s School is committed to excellence in PSHE education and have signed up to the PSHE Association school charter for PSHE education. To find out more, please follow the link to the PSHE Association web page.
